Jagapathi Babu made a stunning comeback as a villain and character artiste in 2014 and since then he has become the most sought-after actor in not just Telugu but the entire south film industry. In Bollywood, Anil Kapoor also has a similar career graph. After he decided to quit as a leading hero he has been giving groundbreaking performances in many films like Malang, Dil Dhadakne Do, and Total Dhamaal.
To bring in some novelty the makers of Mahesh Babu’s Sarkaru Vaari Paata approached Anil Kapoor to play the role of the main antagonist in the film. The role demands an actor who is suave, classy, and robust. Anil Kapoor fits the bill and hence the team of Sarkaru Vaari Paata found him to be an ideal choice. But Anil Kapoor seems to have demanded a remuneration of 10 crores which shocked the makers. In these post-COVID times, every maker wants to minimize the cost of production and is not ready to pay hefty remunerations to actors so that’s the reason they had to let Anil Kapoor go.
The hunt is on for the main antagonist for this Superstar Mahesh Babu’s social entertainer based on Bank scams. Keerthy Suresh is playing the lead while Parashuram directs the film.
